The Arts

At Bethany we believe that developing the students creative talents is an essential part of the wellbeing of all students. Our school curriculum provides students with opportunities to develop their creative skills, through a variety of visual and performing art mediums.

Boite Choir

Each year the Year 4 students in the Bridging Centre explore the world through song with the Boite Schools Chorus: a state wide chorus event for schools and community youth choirs.

 

In Term 2, Year 4 students auditioned to represent our school in this initiaitive. Approximately 45 students represented our school alongside other schools across the state and performed at Melbourne Town Hall in July. The 2016 Boite School Chorus theme 'Windrush', celebrated in song and story, the family history of Geoffrey Williams.  Telling of  his impoverished childhood to the families hopes of prosperity through their emigration to London.

 

 Drumming

In year 4 student have the opportunity to experience African Drumming.  Whilst  for 5 and 6 students  this experience devlops into the opportunity to be part of an African Drumming group.  In these sessions they; explore hand and stick drum techniques, learn how to play other percussion instruments and improve their sense of rhythm and beat

Students culminate their drumming experience with performances at school events such as Confirmation and Graduation.

Music

Music experiences are provided for students throughout the school. Students explore the many elements of music making and performance. They do this by; singing alone and with others, learning about different tuned and untuned persussion instruments and being involved in musical activities that are movement based.  

Photography

In the Leadership Centre the Year 5 children participate in a Photography course. Through intense workshops, the children develop skills in photo composition, camera usage and creative editing skills using various editing packages. Our children enter photography competitions, The Young Australian Art Awards and the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize. Both are highly esteemed competitions nationally and we are proud to say that we have had many winners in both.
